About the Author

Marcus Maloney is a Teaching Associate in Sociology at Monash University, Australia.


"Maloney's book is an interesting attempt that studies the overall direction of popular culture and society by addressing four diverse texts from the turn of the millennium. ... the book positions itself in an intersection that appeals to students, especially undergraduates who find it difficult to see the deployment of critical theory and philosophy in something as broad as popular culture." (Mani Saravanan, The Popular Culture Studies Journal, Vol. 4 (1-2), 2016)
